Water Challenges: Landfill leachate is water that has been in contact with landfill waste. This is mainly due to rainwater seeping through the landfill, but also arises from the waste itself. Landfill leachate must be treated through a wastewater treatment plant, generally customized based on the substances present. Landfill leachate is usually very cloudy, thick and brown in color and has a very strong smell.



Applied Solution: Applications revolving around landfill leachate requires double treatment processes in order for complete purification of its contaminants. The two systems generally used are ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis. Ultrafiltration (UF) systems have diverse membrane filtrations where hydrostatic pressure pushes solvents against a very fine membrane. They block suspended particulates and solids that are large while water and solutes with a lower molecular weight are allowed to flow through the membrane. Reverse Osmosis utilizes semi-permeable membranes to block out all unwanted contaminants, such as microbiological organisms, bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants to produce pure water. Pure Aqua has recently manufactured large-scale ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis systems for the treatment of a landfill leachate wastewater issue in Colombia, which was successfully completed with outstanding success.
